As a note, 250M was the figure Bezos paid to buy the rag.

As a further note. assets other than the newspaper (outdoor media, radio stations, etc.) were part of the deal. When you net out the value of the other assets and the debt assumed, the newspaper operation was valueless. Which is about right.

He needs to sue several other people, too. Especially the ones who called for the death of the students: “put them all in the school and burn it down.”

“He needs to sue several other people, too. Especially the ones who called for the death of the students: “put them all in the school and burn it down.””

Subpoena every Social Media feed for the event along with every network and every newspaper. Everyone on the trip files a class action lawsuit against every public figure who came out against Covington. As further evidence, they can use other events where public figures made damaging comments.

Forget 250 million. Go for the whole enchilada.

But he wasn’t a “protestor”...he was a kid visiting the Lincoln Memorial.

If you wish to characterize the March for life as a protest, fine. But, they were done with that and had moved on at the time he was accosted by the Stolen Valor Injun.

$250,000,000

Bezos' net worth is $133,000,000,000.

“Wonder how we can help this kid?”

Pray for him, his fellow students and family.
He’s in great hands. His counsel is superb.

Sandmann was not a public figure. The burden of proof for libel against a private citizen is measurably lower than for a public person. He won’t get anywhere near the $250 mil, but I hope he puts a hurt on the Bezos Lie Machine.

I’m betting that he will go after the biggest and most vunerable target - this one - first. A large corporation owned by the richest person on the planet ruining the life of a MINOR, private person by deliberately reporting falsehoods for political purposes has very, very bad optics.

After the Post loses or settles, I expect some bigmouth liberals to fulfill their promise and move out of the country, because they will be next in short order.
